How much do I suck? Let me count the ways!

Ok seriously? I don’t get half of these things that were said to me. I just shake my head and vent to my MIL and hope that she laughs with me. And thankfully, she does. She’s a good woman to have around. ESPECIALLY when we’re venting about HER inlaw family!

So, this past weekend was Adam’s grandparents 65 wedding anniversary party. (not to mention when this party was in the works, I requested NOT to have it on that weekend as we were going to have Jillian’s birthday party, but whatev) Adam’s dad, brother and sister in law all flew in from the east coast. Unfortunately my mother in law didn’t come to drink the party.

It started on Friday afternoon. I spent 30 minutes trying to get from the parking area I was in to the parking lot where the rental cars were to find my brother in law and sister in law. I then paid $28 dollars in parking. REALLY? FML. $28 is highway robbery!

I had decided to drop my father in law, brother in law and sister in law off at Adam’s grandparents house and leave to get the cake. However, apparently since we just picked up my niece, Lauren was VERY intent on playing with Jane instead of taking a car ride to get the cake. I met one of Adam’s aunts. She’s from BC. Married to Adam’s dad’s brother. (Did you follow that?!) She immediately goes in about “I thought you said Jillian was 2. Why doesn’t she walk?” Apparently this family doesn’t talk to one another. Cue a “education” lesson from me about Cerebral Palsy.

Adam’s aunt and uncle then asked me when we were going to try for more kids. Um NEVER! I said that Adam and I MIGHT adopt later on down the line (She said “Adam will LET you do that” and “What will Brenda and Allen say about that?” Brenda and Allen are my mother in law and father in law who used to foster parent children. Right. Because they have so much say in what Adam and I do)

Oh, let’s not forget that I’m not LETTING Jillian walk AND I’m starving her! GO me! I’m so talented! I was a little miffed, but whatever. I called Adam and said “YOUR FAMILY IS WEIRD” He then told me they were my family too. Man. That sucks.

The next day was the party. Great. I got up EARLY and drove to get the cake. I was also getting sick. Totally my luck. I felt like butt, but the show must go on, right? So, I’ve mentioned my weight loss before. I’ve now lost 60 lbs. Adam’s grandmother said- EVERY TIME I WENT TO EAT SOMETHING “You’d better watch it! You’re going to gain all that weight back!” So, what did I eat? 2 hand fulls of chips, 1 bite of sandwich, 2 little tiny sausage rolls and 5 bites of cake. Couple that with 2 glasses of wine. Let me tell you how tipsy I was. :p

Check out this cake- btw!!

So, that was my weekend last week. How was yours? I have more stories, but really? I don’t think I need to give you anymore ammo to throw back at me how much I suck. ;)

  11. You don’t suck. Your family sucks. I hate when family stick their nose where it doesn’t belong because they are too ignorant to know whats really going on.

  15. WOW. Can’t believe those comments! I hate explaining the CP thing…Hate it. Whenever I do, I end up in tears. When Ben was diagnosed, my parents were the only people who were told by my LIPS. I told them to tell everyone (poor them). I later posted a summary on Facebook (you can read it if you’re interested…just check out my Notes) and told everyone who read it to tell everyone else.

    As for the weight loss…GOOD FOR YOU!!! I lost 40 pounds last year and it was the best thing I ever did. I’ve maintained that loss for over a year and am thinking I’d like to lose 10 more. We’ll see. Haven’t quite decided if I want to be a Size 8!
